2. Browse database subject terms.
Synonyms found in a dictionary might not be the words favored by the researchers in a given field. To find what those words are, you can try using the subject terms in the library databases instead.
Using Proquest Research Library or Canadian Business & Current Affairs (a Proquest database), open up the thesaurus window by clicking on the “Thesaurus” button on the Advanced Search page. In the new window that opens, do a search on genocide.
The database will give you a list of subject terms. Click on the words for broader or narrower terms. Click on the square beside a term and find the related terms.
